Fly Fishing On Squaw Creek


During your next vacation, learn the art of Lake Tahoe fly fishing at Resort at Squaw Creek.

Fly fishing has proved to be one of the most enjoyed Lake Tahoe activities by our Squaw Valley vacationers.

Federation of Fly Fishers Certified Casting Instructor Matt Heron offers a variety of classes to teach you all about this ancient angling method for fly fishing near our Olympic Valley hotel.

Below is a sample of fly fishing classes:

  • Cast N' Catch (3 hrs)  This is Matt's most popular fly fishing class, offering the best of both worlds, casting instruction and fishing. Class begins with a private hour and a half casting lesson, which leads into an hour and a half of guided fishing on the private ponds at Resort at Squaw Creek. After your three hours, you'll understand why this is the #1 choice of all Lake Tahoe fly fishing students!
  • Introduction to Fly Fishing 101 (3 hrs) - A great class for anyone interested in learning about this exciting activity. This fly fishing course covers everything from A-Z in the world of fly fishing, but does not include time on the water.
  • The Sundowner (Full Day) - This program covers all the subjects of the Introduction to Fly Fishing 101 course, along with guided evening fly fishing on the Resort at Squaw Creek's private, stocked ponds right here in Squaw Valley, California.
  • Fish On (1.5 hrs) - For those who just want to spend a few hours fishing in one of the most beautiful settings in the world. Let Matt be your personal guide on one of the resort's two private, stocked ponds.
